Focus Stars  I had a Mother of the Bride, Ivory color, dress that had hung in my closet for 12 years in plastic when I noticed that it had deep dark brown food/alcohol stains on it.

I took it and my daughters wedding dress, which was solid beads and crystals, that was black underneath from the bar floor she danced on at her wedding. I had little hope for the older Mother’s dress. Sandy assured me that it was no problem at all and she would have them both ready in less than two weeks.

I picked up both dresses today and was totally amazed that they were both spotless and looked BRAND NEW again!

I HIGHLY recommend them for cleaning and/or preservation of your wedding gown and formal clothes. She really did an amazing job on a dress I had totally written off as ruined for good.

Thanks Drake Cleaners – great job!!
